De-tuning a truck

I would like to take the 6 gun selector off of my truck and go back to a stock configuration. The wires go into the computer, and i was wondering if I unhook them, will my truck just go back to stock, or does that not happen. My trucks shift points are off a bit, and since i bought the truck with this configuration on, I just want to start fresh and add my own tuning from sombody on this forum.

Just unhook the battery's, pull out the computer and slide the chip out.. Then you can have that chip reburnt with custom tunes!

I took out the chip today to find out that it's a Bully Dog 6 select. I drove the truck around with the chip out and the shifts seemed better, but I really didn't know what mode I was in since I didn't know what chip was installed. I looked on the website and found the 6 settings to which they work, and I was always in option 5 cuz that seemed the best (+75hp). I guess I could put it back in and just go to option 1, which is stock, but I really don't know what to do. Now I am really confused.

Sell it and get something better.... I like DP Tuner, but there's others out there too... PHP, Beans, Swamps, Wildman, etc... most of them utilize the TS Performance 6 position chip with custom tunes burnt on them from thoes listed above.

Just make sure you got gauges, a better than stock intake/air filter, and at least straight pipe the stock exhaust, as the stock muffler is the real bottle neck.
